Purple Horse

Horse and Rider

The horse and rider sculpture is 21 inches high.  The head is an 8 inch steel sphere with 2 inch brass spheres for the eyes.  The brass eyes are attached using threaded rods which were drilled and tapped into the steel sphere.  To prevent the threaded rod from spinning, I solder them to the head.  After I welded the face and glasses on, it was obvious the eyes did not line up correctly.  I ended up having to relocate one of the threaded rods.  The nice thing about working with steel you can correct your mistakes.
